This breaks a lot of other modules and behaviour and can not be deactivated by usuall means.

Funktioniert wie erwartet
Perfekt Erweiterung, die eigentlich schon im Magento Core enthalten sein sollte.
Nach der Installation einfach unter System => Konfiguration => SCP => SCP Config die gewünschten Features einschalten!
*Evtl. könnte man noch einbauen, dass die Produktbilder vorgerendert werden*

Working on 1.9.1
This extension should be include in the core of Magento. I used the github corrections for configuration.php and the extension works in 1.9.1 only the image doesn't change as different selections are made. Price changes, Descriptions change, just the picture stays.
If anyone has a solution for this please post in the reply.

Conflicts with CloudZoom
Shame, this extension does exactly what I need it to do and I managed to get it working in 1.8.1 after applying the fixes form previous reviewers - alas, it conflicts with the CloudZoom extension, causing an Invalid Method error on product pages.
I can't really do without CloudZoom, so out of the two extensions I have to give up on this one.
Anyway, I can't trust an extension that is no longer supported, requires a manual fix and (reading other reviews) tends to cause all sorts of problems.
Either it gets updated, or I am steering clear of this one.

thank you thank you. i'm hoping this feature is added to magento's core eventually. some features like the option to show child images and descriptions are super needed.
i haven't run into conflicts yet at all.

Very Good but no From-Label
Extension runs very good except the from-label isn't there.
On base-price it shoud be a From-label, right?
In the js file is a point where from-label is generated i think. but i have no from-label.
Have anyone an idea?

Works on 1.8.1!
Great extension, it works very well in CE 1.8.1 by using the fix described by tzvimoshe in http://pastebin.com/spVj88T4
Thank you Matt Dean for this extension still working so well through all this years!
Just one recommendation for those who download the OrganicInternet_SimpleConfigurableProducts-0.7.4_ready2paste.tgz it was configured to be placed in the base directory so it would be better if you change that directory for your Theme directory.

Added fix for 22.214.171.124 but still not working
Hi, I copied the pastebin content into the configurable file but it still doesn't seem to change the displayed price to the simple product price upon selection.
Currently, my prices are by default set to show the lowest price out of the simple products. My configurable price is set to 0.
Any ideas on what might be a possible issue?

Working on 1.8.1
Just installed it on 1.8.1 using the Configurable.php fix provided by UlyssesOdysseus in the reviews below. (thank you, by the way!) Everything appears to be working well thus far!
Some other people reported 1.8 issues with 404s and re-indexing problems. I haven't had any issues like that yet *fingers crossed*. I've tested re-indexing, saving products, etc. No errors. I just upgraded a DB from 1.4 incrementally up to 1.8.1 against a clean install, then installed this extension thereafter, so it's possible the other errors being mentioned are due to an extension conflict or not having applied the fix for 1.7 and above.
As others having mentioned, the code is a bit suspect in areas but this extension does the job if you get it installed correctly. There really aren't any alternatives out there that can do the same as this one as far as I know, unfortunately.
So for now, I will continue to recommend this extension but if you have a means of configuring your products another way, it might be in your best interest to do that. Shopping Cart Price rules can sometimes get the job done. I'm not sure how this code will work beyond 1.7 / 1.8 either.
